STS.464 Technology and the Literary Imagination (MIT)
Our linked subjects are (1) the historical process by which the meaning of technology has been constructed, and (2) the concurrent transformation of the environment. To explain the emergence of technology as a pivotal word (and concept) in contemporary public discourse, we will examine responses — chiefly political and literary — to the development of the mechanic arts, and to the linked social, cultural, and ecological transformation of 19th- and 20th-century American society, cultu
SP.2H3 Ancient Philosophy and Mathematics (MIT)
Western philosophy and theoretical mathematics were born together, and the cross-fertilization of ideas in the two disciplines was continuously acknowledged throughout antiquity. In this course, we read works of ancient Greek philosophy and mathematics, and investigate the way in which ideas of definition, reason, argument and proof, rationality and irrationality, number, quality and quantity, truth, and even the idea of an idea were shaped by the interplay of philosophic and mathematical inquir
6.01 Introduction to Electrical Engineering and Computer Science I (MIT)
6.01 explores fundamental ideas in electrical engineering and computer science, in the context of working with mobile robots. Key engineering principles, such as abstraction and modularity, are applied in the design of computer programs, electronic circuits, discrete-time controllers, and noisy and/or uncertain systems.

Core Physics PBL – Automated Searches for Leaking Water Pipes in the Desert.
‘Automated Searches for Leaking Water Pipes in the Desert’ is a 2nd year PBL project, undertaken by students organised into small groups working as a team. Students will have a preliminary computer simulated laboratory session, then two experimental laboratory sessions accompanied by two facilitated group meeting. There will be two additional unsupervised group meetings for tying up loose ends and for preparation of conference presentations and reports. Teams will work in pairs, with each

Definitions of Copyright: What Do They Know?
In this lesson, students will begin to explore the often-perplexing world of copyrights by defining the essential elements of U.S. copyright law. Beginning with the Copy Quiz game and a free-form class discussion, students will tease out collective and individual ideas about the rights of creators and users. Then students will be asked to reflect on their experiences making and using creative works online and write down the questions that they want answered by the end of the unit.
Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The interviewer probes for the student's ideas about what would happen to the weight when a substance is dissolved. He asks the student to make a prediction and they test it using a balance scale. The segment shows that the student does not see conservation as a general principle that applies to all substances.
You could use templates to begin the process of reflection. Here is a template based on learning outcomes that you can modify for your own use. Add your own learning outcomes and appropriate questions
Core Physics PBL – White Knuckle Ride.
White Knuckle Ride’ is a Group Research Project, undertaken by students organised into small groups working as teams. Most, if not all, of the required theory can be found in the course book (Physics for Scientists and Engineers, Tipler). You will have four laboratory sessions to perform the experiments, as well as two workshops with facilitators. For each of the workshops you should prepare answers to set question, which will be marked at the workshops. These workshop questions are designe
